2001 will adding a rear spacer degrade performance?

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 2001; Engine (type, size, modifications): stock; Total Mileage: 30,000;

Sorry, got a dumb question here...I just got a clean 2001 Boxster with 16" rims with great Conti tires.My buddy has given me his 996 17" wheels but with worn tires.I can mount them, but I only have about a 1mm clearance.Would I need a spacer? If so, will that degrade the cornering ability and handling?If given the choice of new tires for the 17" or installing H&R springs on the 16", which would be the best "bang for the buck" in making the car corner like a monster? Don't really care about "looks" too much. Would just like a car that can slice thru corners.Thanks in advance.
